Pattern Notes

Throughout the pattern, ch 3 at the beginning of the row counts as dc.

Macoun is a triangular shawl worked from side to side.

The different lace patterns within the piece make it interesting, and the simplicity of the shaping allows for personal adjustments, dependent on yarn and size required.

The drawing of leaves is repeated every 4 rows 23 times.
